Non-woven permeable synthetic fabrics have been used in engineering applications for the last ten years. Considerable research has been conducted throughout the world since the first geotechnical applications of synthetic fabric, and the behavior and mechanics of soil fabrics systems have been analyzed for better specification and product development. The generic term, geotechnical fabric, is applied to a variety of artificial fiber textile products used in engineered construction of civil works. These products are also termed civil engineering fabric, geofabric, geotextile, and filtered cloth.
